Style | ASOS AW17 Preview


In April global fashion retailer showcased their collection for the AW17 season in Fitzrovia, Manchester and whilst I'm always excited for new clothes I've been sitting on this preview post for a few months. I definitely wasn't ready to let go of Summer before it had even really begun but somehow we're already in August. So with Autumn right around the corner, expect a season with ruffles, florals, tartan and 80s tailoring firmly on the fashion menu.

I didn't document everything here as the ASOS AW17 collection is so huge I focused on the pieces I've got my eye on or may be popular pieces for this season. The vintage washed denim mini skirt will be the first item I'll be picking up when it's available as it's one of those all-rounders that'll work with a lot of what I have already. The gold caged bag, studded boots and green wide leg trousers with taped detail are also earmarked for my wardrobe and I'm in love with the the neutral colour palette of the menswear pieces.

As you'd expect, a few AW17 pieces have already started dropping on the ASOS website but most will be available from September to December.

Style | Monki Dungaree Dress


Denim pieces account for most of my wardrobe but finding ones that actually fit properly, especially dungarees, has always been a bit of a challenge. In the past most brands of dungarees I've tried have been too baggy or fit awkwardly around the waist. I finally found  dungaree dress from cool Scandi fashion brand Monki last month and it fits perfectly.

As well as the fit, I love the bleach wash and rose gold button detailing. This lighter hue is definitely perfect for the warmer months and wore it with a loosely tucked in striped shirt from ASOS (an old favourite) and a pair of  from the Face Stockholm collection*.


Accessories-wise I always tend to keep things pretty minimal so only wore a couple of pieces here. I love anything with a classic, simple design and this sterling silver Link Bracelet* I received recently from Fiyah really fits the bill. If you're interested, the brand has also supplied a discount of 10% off orders when you use code 'FRESH'. The ring is an old favourite from Magpie on the Run, I'm pretty much always wearing it!

Style | Topshop Fluted Blouse


Blouses are almost entirely absent from my wardrobe currently. I've been too accustomed to buying tees but I really love exaggerated and floaty sleeves so I couldn't resist peachy number from Topshop. It's a beaut and I find it hard not to swish around (like an absolute idiot) in this.


It comes in a few other colours including black (which I usually gravitate towards) but I thought I'd try a different colour for once and I really love it. You may see me in more colour soon as a result...maybe. 

It's so easy to dress up or down, like most of what I buy, but I've mostly been wearing this top casually. I have a habit of finding something I like and buying it in every colour - hence the addition of another a-line denim skirt here but I've also been wearing this blouse tucked into shredded mom jeans.

Style | Borrowing from the boys


I have a habit of buying men's shirts and jackets lately. It stems from a few years of pinching my boyfriend's clothes, much to his annoyance. I just love the simplicity of menswear and a boxy cosy fit. I spied men's yellow denim jacket recently on ASOS and the colour made me 'add to basket' real quick. I bought it in a small and it's still pretty huge as the fit is oversized but I'm in love with it and it definitely ticks the comfortable box!


I know us Brits always go on about the weather constantly but you can't blame us really. It's actually been warm enough in Manchester to brave bare legs again which has gotten me so excited for Summer. I love how uncomplicated style can be in the warmer months (as the city gets so humid and you can't wear more than a few pieces without overheating). I paired the jacket with a crop top and black denim skirt here as I still wanted to still keep the look feminine and Vans because they seem to go with everything!

Beauty | ASOS x Deciem


Self-dubbed the 'abnormal beauty company', Deciem is an umbrella of beauty brands including Hylamide, The Chemistry Brand, The Ordinary and NIOD all of which are making waves in the industry currently. With the brand's head office based in Toronto, Canada, the products are mostly available online from a few retailers including ASOS. They also opened their first UK store recently in Spitalfields Market, Manchester and another is set to open in Covent Garden soon. To celebrate the sale of new Deciem products on ASOS, a few ASOSers and beauty influencers were invited to the Deciem flagship store on Thursday evening. It's the first time I've visited the store and it has an apothecary feel to it with a modern and minimal aesthetic, definitely my kind of settings!


At the event, co-founder Nicola Kilner focused on Deciem's newest brand The Ordinary, which is only about 6 months old. The key selling point of The Ordinary products are that they use effective ingredients and technologies but they're sold at a very affordable price point - you can pick up most of the products for less than £10 each. The brand calls it "Clinical formulations with integrity" and it's not hard to see why this brand has struck a chord with skincare enthusiasts across the globe.

I've had quite a few of The Ordinary products amongst my skincare arsenal since the end of last year but it took me a while to work out which products were best for my skin. The brand's website is extremely helpful however, giving suggestions on how to slot these products into your skincare routine based on your needs. It also goes into detail on which products work well together (and which don't) as well as what order to use them in to reap the most benefits. 

At the event Nicola ran through the most popular products from The Ordinary sold on ASOS which were Niacinamide (£5/30ml)*, Hylauronic Acid (£5.90/30ml)*, Advanced Retinoid (£8/30ml) and Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil (£9/30ml)*. I have all of them and will post a review at a later date of these when I've got more of a feel for how they're working for me. Nicola explained the benefits of each - the Niacinamide is great with helping with blemishes and congestion (nighttime use only), Hylauronic acid is key for hydration and Retinoid and Rose Hip Seed Oil both help with signs of ageing.

Nicola also briefly touched on the brand's latest product addition Colours, a 42-strong collection of mineral-based foundations priced at less than £6 each. I sampled a few shades at the event and the foundation applies so smoothly. Nicola explained that the way the pigments are suspended in the formula means that they can't stick to each other so they don't gather in fine lines giving a 'flawless' look. I didn't have the product on long enough to really test this out but I'm intrigued to see if there's a product that doesn't crease under my eyes or in my smile lines so I'm eagerly awaiting the launch of these foundations later this month. 


You can get  products in-store, online or on .
